Some great texts here for Chemistry of Health and drug discovery researchers.
The Moore Library is pleased to announce that access is now available to Springer Biomedical and Life Sciences 2015- 2017 ebook collections on the SpringerLink platform.
There are currently 1,546 available titles, and further 2017 titles will be added as they are published. Monographs, contributed volumes, handbooks and selected encyclopaedias in Springer designated sub-disciplines such as Animal Models, Cell Biology, Human Genetics, Immunology, Microbiology, Neuroscience, Pharmacology, and Plant Sciences are included in these collections.
The full text of these titles can be found in and accessed from iDiscover, and are accessible for unlimited concurrent users, both on and off campus via a Raven login.
These collections will be available in full until the 31st December 2017 in the first instance, at which point the most popular titles will be purchased in perpetuity.

These titles are especially good for undergraduates, and postgraduates supervising undergraduates, to get a basic understanding of a topic.
New titles are regularly added to Oxford’s Very Short Introductions Online, the most recently published titles are listed below.
This popular and accessible series offers concise introductions across a wide range of subject areas; Arts & Humanities, Law, Medicine & Health, Science & Mathematics & Social Sciences.
You can browse by subject or search the collection of currently 525 titles, and you can search at the chapter level. You can create your own personal profile which will give you the option to save titles you are reading, copy, paste and annotate the text.

Please have a look at this brilliant new guide on TDM!
We are keen to help the research process where we may be able to make a contribution towards facilitating text & data mining in the University. To that end we offer a new LibGuide on text & data mining in the growing number of guides in the Cambridge Libraries’ family of LibGuides.
The aim of this guide is to make a start towards exposing the breadth of content (mostly library-subscribed) that may be of potential exploitation by Cambridge researchers wanting to use the techniques of text and data mining in their research. The guide summarizes the main points in the Hargreaves exception and builds on and links out to professional bodies and information sources to provide librarians and University members with a beginner’s guide to first steps in TDM and considerations it is important to make.
The guide provides a means of contacting us to clear any issues that…

Chemists might be interested in several of these new ebooks: Introduction to agent based modelling, Principles of Inorganic Materials Design, Molecular gels, and Progress in Exergy, Energy, and the Environment.
Here is a selection of the titles added to the ebooks@cambridge collection during June. These titles were purchased by, or on behalf of, department and faculty libraries within the University of Cambridge and by the University Library.
Click on the cover image to access the title via our authenticated links.
The following books were recommended by members of the Department of Chemistry and are now available to borrow.
If you are a member of the Department of Chemistry and would like to recommend anything, whether it is an online journal, a book, an ebook, or a database, please see our guidance here. Recommendations are always welcome.
As part of the Data Champions initiative, we invite members of the Department of Chemistry to contribute to a list of instructions for converting the data you generate through experiments using techniques such as NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, electron microscopy, x-ray crystallography etc. into open data formats that can be shared easily.
The aim is to save researchers time and effort in trying to find this out themselves, and to make it as easy as possible for them to share their data in an open format that is accessible to everyone.
First on our list are very brief instructions for converting NMR spectroscopy data from TopSpin to a text file in the internationally accepted open data format JCAMP-DX.
Please send your instructions to email@example.com and they will be added to the list.
Data Champions at the Department of Chemistry
Data Champions are local experts on research data management and sharing who can provide advice and training within their departments.
Your Data Champions currently are:
- Sergio Cuesta (Sergio.MartinezCuesta@cruk.cam.ac.uk, also based at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute, Balasubramanian Group)
- Kent Griffith (firstname.lastname@example.org, Grey Group)
- Quentin Peter (email@example.com, Knowles Group)
We are currently planning research data management related activities that we can carry out in the department. Please let us have your ideas! Contact one of the Data Champions or Clair Castle, Librarian at the Department of Chemistry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please visit the Chemistry Library’s Open Data website to find out more about your Data Champions, and other resources that will help chemists do open research.
